KATHMANDU, July 9: Now people can buy and sell land online right from their homes in the same way as they carry out share transactions in the capital market. The Department of Land Management and Archive (DoLMA) has started the practice of buying, selling and trading land online just like buying and selling shares from home.

Shesh Narayan Poudel, director general of DoLMA, said that the system will be fully implemented all over the country within a couple of years. "We will implement this system everywhere in the country within the next fiscal year," Poudel said.

The department on Wednesday launched an online system in all 126 Land Revenue Offices of the country. Land Records Information Management System (LR IMS) has been launched in eight Land Revenue Offices at Dolpa, Mugu, Rukum West, Manang, Rupandehi, Gulmi, Gorkha and Khotang, which were not connected to the online system earlier.

Till last year, the online system operated at 108 revenue offices. The service has been extended to the remaining 18 Land Revenue Offices in the current fiscal year. The online service, which was first started from the Land Revenue Office, Kalanki, on August 10, 2015, has reached across the country since Wednesday.

The department plans to connect the LR IMS system with Nagarik app to buy and sell land from home. After that, the department is preparing to collect the fingerprints and signatures of all the landowners and update the collected fingerprints and signatures. After the signatures and fingerprints of all the landlords have been collected, the landowners can prepare their own deed at home. The department has provided land service centers to all the service recipients so that the service recipients can prepare their own documents. 

If the service recipient wants to buy or sell land or do land related transactions, the Land Revenue Office provides ID and password to such service recipients. By using the ID and password, the landowner can fill in all the details online. The department has started the practice of dealing with land from home after making sure that the form filled by the landowner is correct.

The Department of Surveying and Mapping has also implemented an online system in 10 places including the Kathmandu valley so that land maps can be printed at home. The department plans to implement it across the country from next year.
